It’s hard to embrace an airplane

I don’t blame this pony for being bored with his job, but boy, do I want to know where I can get some of those chicken- and star-shaped popsicles… if only to find out what a chicken-shaped popsicle tastes like.

Couldn’t get any realer

Muhammad Ali had all the best words, all the time. About his opponents, about the world, and about himself. So I’ll just follow his advice now: “Silence is golden when you can’t think of a good answer,” and leave you with this cartoon.


That pickle you call a nose

After watching this cartoon, I wondered if kids today even know what limburger cheese is. Then I realized I only knew about limburger cheese via cartoons and old comedies I saw growing up, so I started reading about limburger cheese. After reading about limburger cheese, I’m glad that the only contact I have with it is via old cartoons. I might, however, want to start using it as a mosquito trap.

Thoughts on today’s cartoon:

    • I’m not sure why all the Indians sound like they’re working the dinner show at a Catskills resort.
    • Where is Marie?
    • If I had a magic lamp, I think I would wish for something more than an ice cream sundae.

Waist deep in the Big Muddy

Happy America Day from me and Orson Welles. Anyone up for a little river cleanup after hot dogs and fireworks?

Don’t shake like that

Apropos of nothing, here are two cartoons featuring raspberry jam.

I’m okay alone, but…

Benny had to leave work early today so he didn’t get to be on set with Chaz Bono. He’s never been on set with Chaz Bono before, but he was on set with Chastity Bono once. So, the same but different.

I wonder if Chaz Bono has seen this cartoon, and if he has, if it makes him sad. It’s kind of jarring to me to see Sonny run into the pole like that, and he’s not even my dad. I once rented my ’67 Plymouth Valiant to a film production for use in a scene depicting the main character’s father’s death by car accident, and some years later my dad actually died in a car accident, so maybe I understand. And maybe Chaz has never seen this cartoon.

The dangers of fiber

If this is what eating more fruits and vegetables gets you, I think I’m going to stick with my cheese-butter-bacon diet, thank you very much.

Mistaken identity

I apologize, Barbapapa and family. For years I’ve been under the impression that I hated you. How could I hate you? As it says on your site:

There is no problem that can’t be solved by this extraordinary couple ! Thanks to a few adequate shape changes and their brilliant imagination, they can bring to an end even the most difficult of problems, and always in the gentlest manner! They are forever willing to offer their friendship and services; and their good faith is beyond question! All this has not prevented them from become the attentive and tender parents of seven turbulent children: Barbalala, Barbabright, Barbabelle, Barbazoo, Barbalib, Barbabeau and Barbabravo.

I think all these years I’ve been confusing you with Shmoo and his horrible facial hair. Again, my apologies. Perhaps I could come over to your house some time for tea and stargazing?

A powerful hankerin’
